Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla hopes to be fit for the Premier League trip to West Brom a week on Sunday.

Cazorla has missed the Gunners' last four matches in all competitions due to an ankle injury.

Answering questions on Thursday via Arsenal's Twitter account, the 28-year-old Spain international said: "I will be fit maybe in one week, I hope I can play at West Brom."

Prior to that game, current Premier League leaders Arsenal are at Swansea in the top-flight on Saturday and then host Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday.

As well as Cazorla, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger went into Wednesday's Capital One Cup third-round tie at West Brom - which his team won 4-3 on penalties after it finished 1-1 after extra-time - without Theo Walcott (stomach), Tomas Rosicky (thigh), Yaya Sanogo (back), Lukas Podolski (hamstring), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby (both knee).
